Scouring the newspapers and flyers for coupons is a thing of the past. Today’s savvy couponers use the Internet to find coupons they’ll actually use on things they really want. Simply browse, click and print!
Here are the top five Canadian coupon websites:
This Canadian website launched more than a decade ago, and offers a coupon delivery service. Customers place a free order and receive their coupons in the mail within a few days. The site offers coupons for baby formula, pet food, juice and plenty more. The selection changes frequently and they do impose limits on how many coupons you can request per household. Check out their sister site flyerland.ca for flyer deals, coupons, contests and more.
This Procter & Gamble website offers coupons for their best-selling products, from laundry detergent to toothpaste and nearly everything in between. They also offer free samples—check back often as supplies are limited and featured products change frequently.
Primarily a grocery coupon and grocery deals site, shoppers can also read articles on how to shrink their grocery bill using coupons and sales, find recipes and check out product reviews. All coupons and policies are verified prior to being posted by Canadian founders Steven and Lina Zussino. Follow them on Facebook for breaking deals and limited quality sample giveaways.
One of the top coupon sites for Canadians, users can not only print coupons directly from this website, but they can also participate in coupon trains and trade coupons with others across the country. Register for the forums and find out where the best sales and deals are at every major retailer in the country.
What coupon round up would this be if it didn’t include an institution in couponing, the Entertainment Book? With a 50 year history providing coupons for thousands of businesses in 145 cities across North America, you can’t go wrong by picking up your local copy, as well as a copy for any cities you plan on visiting in the year. If you miss the school kids selling the book, you can usually buy the current Entertainment book at up to 50% off the regular price a few months into the season (no coupon required!).
Sarah Deveau’s first memory of saving up to buy something she really, really wanted was at age five, when she saved her allowance and birthday money for six months to buy a mini waterbed for her Cabbage Patch doll. She’s been in love with money every since; making it, spending it, and saving it too.
The author of two personal finance books, Money Smart Mom: Financially Fit Parenting, and Sink or Swim: Get Your Degree Without Drowning in Debt, Sarah’s work has also appeared in Today’s Parent magazine, the Calgary Herald, and other newspapers and magazines across Canada.
Shortly after her first daughter was born, Sarah opened her own business, an award-winning children’s consignment boutique in Airdrie, Alberta. But once daughters two and three came along, she closed her store to invest in a lakeside farmhouse on 40 acres in rural Nova Scotia. Sarah and her high school sweetheart husband plan to move east within the next ten years and semi-retire before the kids hit high school, made possible by the everyday money decisions they’re making now. Whatever your financial goals, be it a vacation home, college savings for the kids, or getting out of debt and stop cringing at credit card statements, this blog is for you.
